PASTOR WARREN KERR SCHOLARSHIP
Rev. Warren Kerr, a native of Durham, NC was born on Dec. 3, 1926 and died on August 11, 2016. He and his fiancé, Louise Kennedy, came to faith in Jesus Christ the same August evening in 1947 in a Tent Crusade in Durham and soon after, he felt the call to surrender his life to full time ministry, specifically to preach the gospel. He and Louise were married in August of 1949 and were active members of Holloway Street Baptist Church in Durham and he preached when asked. They had four children – Leland, Dana, Cynthia, and Susan. In 1950 he became the Pastor of his first church, Faith Baptist Church in Durham. Throughout his fulltime ministry he served as Pastor of West Hill Baptist Church, Hillsboro; Pearce Baptist Church, Zebulon; Hinshaw Street Baptist Church, North Wilkesboro; Hope Valley Baptist Church; Durham, and New Friendship Baptist Church, Winston-Salem. After retirement at the age of 63, he served as Interim Pastor for 20 years at Hinshaw Street Baptist Church in North Wilkesboro, where he was named Pastor Emeritus; Enon Baptist Church, East Bend; Robinhood Road Baptist Church, Winston-Salem (twice); Oakview Baptist Church, High Point; Maplewood Baptist Church, Yadkinville; Lewisville Baptist Church, Lewisville; Huntsville Baptist Church, Yadkinville; Forbush Baptist Church, Yakdinville; West Bend Baptist Church, Lewisville. He attended the University of North Carolina and graduated from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Having spent his whole life and ministry in North Carolina he touched the lives of countless Pastors, churches, and individuals. When he could no longer serve as an Interim Pastor due to health limitations, he used Facebook and personal blogs to continue to share his faith and encourage others and always closed with “Now that’s Good News!”
